Meeting on Wednesday 5th October- Our speaker is Philip Aubury on 'Successful Fruit Growing: Grow Your Own Five a Day'
Philip was director of the Birmingham Botanical Garden for 20 years, and he reshaped the Gardens to such an extent that both the Queen Mother and Bill Clinton came to visit! He will cover a range of aspects of fruit growing, including preparation of the ground, selection of varieties and root stocks. And he will be demonstrating pruning techniques.
